Michelle and I were saddened to learn about the passing of Geraldine Ferraro. Geraldine will forever be remembered as a trailblazer who broke down barriers for women, and Americans of all backgrounds and walks of life. Whether it was as a public school teacher, assistant district attorney, Member of Congress, or candidate for Vice President, Geraldine fought to uphold America's founding ideals of equality, justice, and opportunity for all. And as our Ambassador to the UN Human Rights Commission, she stood up for those ideals around the world. Sasha and Malia will grow up in a more equal America because of the life Geraldine Ferraro chose to live. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband, John Zaccaro, her children and grandchildren, and their entire family.
Geraldine Ferraro was a ground-breaking American politician who never forgot her working-class, Italian-immigrant roots. And as the first woman nominated as vice president on a major party ticket, Ms. Ferraro was an inspiration to many women no matter what their political inclinations. Ferraro, who passed on Saturday, was a Democrat through and through, working especially hard for women’s rights in the workplace. When Walter Mondale picked her to be his running mate in the 1984 election, they faced a very steep uphill battle against incumbents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush, and in fact they lost badly – winning only Mondale’s home state of Minnesota and the District of Columbia.

Poor liberal Anthony Weiner. Michele Bachmann’s pummeled the far left democrat tonight on Hannity. Despite all of his efforts to talk over and insult popular Republican Michele Bachmann she body slammed him like a playground thug. Weiner looked silly defending the democrat’s unwillingness to cut the deficit and debt. Nancy Pelosi took the national deficit was $162 billion in 2007 and when she exited in January 2011 it was at $1.29 Trillion dollars. Pelosi and Barack Obama even managed to triple the national deficit in his first year after the stimulus passed. It was obvious from the match-up that this Democrat has no intention of cutting spending. Democrats have one answer for everything – spend more taxpayer money. Weiner made that clear tonight. via Michele [...]
We think state employees should have the same collective bargaining rights as Federal employees. They have none for Wages or Benefits. In 1978, Democratic President Jimmy Carter, backed by a Democratic Congress, passed the Civil Service Reform Act. Why should state employees have more rights than Federal Workers? It is called Civil "Service" after all! Public-Employee Unions: Facts, Figures, Some History hile less than 8 percent of private workers are covered by union contracts, union penetration in the public sector is 40 percent (and about 50 percent in Wisconsin). Government employees are now more than half of all remaining union members, and government unions increasingly dominate what is left of the organized labor movement–along with the politics of states that have [...]

Right now, Joe Biden is sitting in a chair somewhere, perhaps sipping a glass of wine and enjoying the company of the Cartoon Network’s prime time programming. Seemingly delightfully oblivious to the position he’s in, Joe has become the unwitting scapegoat to the problems of the Obama administration. That is, after Obama has been blamed of course. So in their scramble to keep a good face on the party, the Democratic liberals are already propping up Hillary Clinton to replace Biden on the 2012 ticket, whether she knows it or not. While no official comment has come from her camp, the Democratic party is nonetheless priming her for a 2012 run, hoping to pull in the same working class votes that supported her in the 2008 election. Meanwhile, the Republican party is [...]
South Carolina Democratic Senate candidate Alvin Greene told reporters that he will make his first public speech to a local chapter of the NAACP at the Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in his home town of Manning. The appearance will occur on Sunday, July 18. Greene told The Associated Press he has been invited by a local branch of the state conference of the NAACP to speak at the group's monthly meeting Sunday in his hometown of Manning. "Jobs, education and justice, the campaign for the general election," Greene said, when asked what he planned to discuss. "That's what I'm focusing on right now." Greene has given a series of awkward, often terse media interviews since June 8, when he won an unexpected victory over former state lawmaker Vic Rawl. Greene will face GOP U.S. [...]
South Carolina Democratic Senate Candidate, Vic Rawl, filed a protest of last Tuesday’s election results with the South Carolina Democratic Party. Rawl said he, did not file the protest for personal or political gain, but on behalf of the people of South Carolina. He cites irregularities in the election results that caused him to lose and his opponent, Alvin Greene to win by nearly thirty thousand votes. There is a cloud over Tuesday’s election. There is a cloud over South Carolina, that affects all of our people, Democrats and Republicans, white and African-American alike. At this point, the people of our state do not have the basic confidence that their vote will be counted. The strange circumstances surrounding Tuesday’s vote require a thorough investigation. For [...]
South Carolina Democrat Senate Candidate, Alvin Greene, doesn't have money, Yard signs, a website, or a comprehensive platform. What he does have is a felony. Greene won against Vic Rawl who was favored to win the election. Following hearing about Greenes pending legal issues, the South Carolina Democratic Party has asked him to withdraw from the race. Greene, a 32-year-old unemployed African-American Army veteran, raised no money in his short primary campaign against Charleston City Councilman Vic Rawl for the chance to face Republican Sen. Jim DeMint in November. Greene had no campaign website, no staff and paid the $10,400 filing fee with his own money, while Rawl raised more than $230,000 and campaigned across the state. Nonetheless, Greene posted a 59 percent to 41 percent [...]
